Psycho-pass 8, Polar Bear 35

Psycho-Pass 8 finishes up its latest routine crime story and brings very little new to it. We have Ouryou, the crazy killer artist girl, give a rather mundane reason for choosing the victims she did, that they were in a girls school that was designed to create "ladies," or good wives for successful men, I … Continue reading Psycho-pass 8, Polar Bear 35

Robotics;Notes 7 reminds me a lot of that turning point in Steins;Gate, except that no one's taken a bullet in the forehead yet. In both shows the characters dither in a lighthearted way for many episodes until the plot shows up: WHAM! In this show the kids go through their usual routine of getting that … Continue reading noitaminA sevens

Psycho-Pass 6, K 7 and maybe the last, and Polar Bear 33

Psycho-Pass 6 gets down to business with the main story arc. It's true that we've seen the ultimate culprit already; he's been smirking on the sidelines in just about every episode, awaiting his turn to take the field ... er, manipulate another person from the sidelines. It only struck me now that the cops this … Continue reading Psycho-Pass 6, K 7 and maybe the last, and Polar Bear 33

Psycho-Pass 5, Polar Bear 32, K 6

Psycho-Pass's attitude toward new technology and the people who use them seem to be as old-fashioned as any other show. Many of the characters seemed unaware of the social networks' size and significance, while others wonder why people would bother. Only Akane, the youngest, seems to understand the what's going on. Masaoka seems to have … Continue reading Psycho-Pass 5, Polar Bear 32, K 6

Three threes and a thirty: Robotics, Psycho, Sukitte, Polar Bear

ROBOTICS;NOTES 3 continues to slip in a darker story around its lighthearted robot battlin'. Just a little at a time. We got the sudden blurriness Kaito experiences which could be easily attributed to fatigue (staying up all night because you don't have hotel room will do that to you) except the show makes too much … Continue reading Three threes and a thirty: Robotics, Psycho, Sukitte, Polar Bear

Tonari 2, Kamisama 2, Chuuinbyou 2, PSYCHO-PASS 1

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun sure didn't waste any time getting the romance started. At first I thought we were just going to meet some of the side characters for the first time. Out of the blue comes Asako, a dumb but beautiful girl who begs Shizuku to help her study for a make-up exam. Shizuku says … Continue reading Tonari 2, Kamisama 2, Chuuinbyou 2, PSYCHO-PASS 1
